    We're going to have a contest in Teh Barracks soon. Post your ideas (NOT your entries) for what kind of contest would most interest you and/or what kind you think you would enter.

    Ideas like photos, stories, penny pics of stuff you've seen/done/been...etc.

    Thoughts? Ideas? Gripes/bitches/moans/complaints?


    edit: Still taking input on what kind of contest this will be, but so far the prizes will be:


    1. A pair of Hatch SOG-F20 Operator "CQB" Tactical Gloves
      Kevlar, Reinforced palms, (I will order your size), Desert Tan.

    2. A One-Month OT Subscription.
    3. ??? Post your ideas for prizes! :naughty:

    Teh range. How well you shoot. Does your target look like a buck shot or not?

    We can't do a "longest single post" thread because Inforpics has us all beat before we even start! And ditto for post whoring - EYOB has that alread locked down. :mamoru:

    Hmmm... We might have a prize for mil and another prize for non-mil. The one item I have that I was thinking about using for a prize would best be used by someone in, or heading to, the sandbox. I'll have to come up with an alternate prize for non-mil, since I don't want to exclude any of Teh Barracks' frequent posters.

    Keep the ideas coming! :bigthumb:

    How about a contest for the best alternate use of some mil item ? Basically the most McGuyver-esque idea for standard issue items, for instance some device that can level a building with only a paper clip, a rubber band , and a clip board :ugh:

    A penny pic with the highest ranking military officer. Side to Side, not just a person in the crowd.

    Prize for military should be 1 (One) 30 Round 5.56 magazine.

    and for civilians should be 1 (one) pork chop MRE.

    Damn. Some good ideas flowin' in here! :bigthumb:

    I'm gonna have to invest in some more prizes. So far, I have an un-used, still in the package, pair of medium Hatch Operator gloves. I need ideas for more prize stuff, now! :cool:

    Hmm back on topic, how bout the most inventive/tasty REPRODUCEABLE MRE recipe. Not a target to be shot at 300yds but something that is palatable and you intend to consume for sustinance, so no boogers and cherry electolyte mix recipes lol

    Sry for the repost but as far as the military folks ive met the only muthafuckas crazy enough to do that shit has been Marines, bc "you have to find out what that sumbitch can really do" qft from Marines I know.

    I'm waiting on C5Load to get back before launching the contest. That slacker's probably damaging government property by getting a sunburn at the pool at his 4-star hotel in Kuwait. :mamoru:
